Brighton & Hove Albion have announced their first signing of the summer in the form of Nigerian defender Leon Balogun.
The 29-year-old leaves German side FSV Mainz on a free transfer and has inked a two-year deal with the Premier League side as they look to strengthen for what should be another tough run in England's top flight.
“I am delighted to welcome Leon to the club," manager Chris Hughton remarked following the capture.
“He is in the peak years of his career and I am sure he will integrate well into the squad. He also has valuable experience, having played in the Bundesliga, the Europa League and at international level.”
